Apologies nced to avoid being recognised.

Fairly senior position in large financial services company. Specialist within a group.

My boss has just announced that the work that I am "responsible" for is to be moved out of the group. I have spent the last year trying to get him engaged on the organisation of what I do without much success. He rarely turns up to meetings. I ask who is going to take the senior lead and nothing ever happens. Spend 3 months of my year fire fighting to get things done and everything delivered. V little engagement from senior people in department and juniors need constant badgering to get things done as they don't feel that they get rewarded for this work in the way they do with other work.

Do I sit tight or (sorry to drip feed) cut my losses? I am hopefully about to be offered a position with a client for ALOT more money and job prospects. Overall I like the team I am in (bar boss) and the work is varied. New role will be a challenge and I am not 100% sure about who I will be directly reporting to.

Don't know how to approach the situation. Any advice.

If you're having the bulk of your work taken away from you, then that seems to indicate redundancy is on the cards.

I would think twice about jumping ship to a client who has promised you a role, as the offer could evaporate as quickly as it was offered. If something seems too good to be true, most of the time it is.....

If you have a long service history with your current employer, that's worth hanging onto. I'd gain clarity over your job before you do anything else.

If the client offers you an interview, go along for the meeting, no harm done in finding out more, but just don't knee-jerk react before you've explored your options.

Sorry I meant to say, if they offer you a redundancy package that may be advantageous rather than leaving for the other role that may end up not happening.
